    Keeping dash good as new?

    Just took delivery of a new 2.0T SRi and I really like the feel of the soft rubber on the top of the dash, and would like to keep it that way. Problem is they tend to dry out & go hard after being in the sun. I've used Autoglym Vinyl & Rubber care before and found it very good at 'nourishing' the dash, though it was a bit shiny. Anyone know of a similar product which will nourish and keep soft without excessive shine?

    I'll second that - well sort of - I use ArmorAll High Gloss Protectant Foam. Ive used this for years in cars and trucks Ive used and the effect is great. It aint sticky but has a slight shine to it - may be too shiny if u want the matt finish.

    for Vauxhall dash's i use sonax matt finish stuff from my Vauxhall dealer, its what they use in the showroom, and if you want the fresh new look. thats the stuff.....

    But there are various products from top name brands like Meguiars & Auto Glym that will sort you out

    Try this stuff, goes on wet, wipe over with a dry cloth, job done.
    I use it on my dash and it's as natural as I can get!

    The autglym vinyl and rubber care will make the dash shiney, which looks poo'y imo.

    go for the ammorall or sonax products.
